Content is King - Don't dethrone him!

 

Content.  To be satisfied and to contain.  Is your current content marketing strategy doing either of these things?  Many web designers, both freelance and agency, require you to produce your content or to pay a little more for it.  Before you opt into the "I want to save money" world of things, consider the long term benefit of having your content produced by an individual who does this for a living.

      Website design and development should be simple for you, as the business owner, and incorporate the principles that make your business stand out among the competition.  For a website to stand out, several things have to be included: search engine optimization (SEO), mobile responsiveness (for those on the go users), social media marketing and an attractive user-friendly interface.
